The trade sending Gerald Green and Miles Plumlee from Indiana to Phoenix in return for the wily veteran Luis Scola was said to be a coup for Indiana as they continued to improve their bench this summer. But — least we forget that Green has supernatural ups — Vine savant Kendall Marshall of Phoenix gave us a peak at Green’s otherworldly hops yesterday. Read More »

Social media has taken over the game — literally. If you’re not front row and center watching your favorite team play, Twitter, Instagram and Vine have you covered.
While outrageous tweets occur as an NBA athlete watches interleague competition in the luxury of their own home, some of the funniest social media instances happen when athletes showcase their human side and some of their extra-curricular activities on our newsfeeds. In light of the animated personalities of the NBA’s brightest stars, we take a look at 15 of the funniest off-court social media moments of 2013. Read More »
C. P. 3. Game 2 on last night’s schedule was light years better than the opener; the second being an intense, ultra physical between the Clippers and the Grizzlies that came down to an incredible last-second bucket by the aforementioned Chris Paul. [Check out our Top 25 Buzzer Beaters and Game Winners in NBA Playoff History]
With the game tied at 91 (after the Clips let Memphis come back from a consistent 6-8-point deficit, including allowing a WIDE OPEN dunk on a screen and roll to even it up), CP, having already taken over on the offense end in the final two minutes, found himself iso’d on Tony Allen. Paul wanted to go right and right only, and Allen played defense about as well as anyone could possibly play without fouling. He closed off CP multiple times before Chris got a step on him – but he still forced Paul into a tough shot from outside the lane. Glass. Good. Buzzer. Ballgame. Watch for yourself here: Read More »
Kobe Bryant Anoints Skylar Diggins “Lady Mamba,” battles “Twitter Idiots”; David Stern Attacks Flopping … and Sean Elliott
With all of the intense, disturbing real-world stuff that went down in Boston all day Friday, basketball games don’t seem so important any more, do they? But here we are. It’s Saturday, the first day of the NBA Playoffs, and after the last week, we probably all need a major dose of basketball played by the world’s greatest athletes to take our minds off of current events.
This is what the schedule looks like: Read More »
With New York mourning the 16th anniversary (are we really that old?) of the death of Biggie Smalls yesterday, the Knicks gave the city something to celebrate. But fittingly, on this day, they also announced another injury to a major star, one that might murder the rest of his season … J.R. Smith had 24 points, and Steve Novak added another 20 off the pine in New York’s 29-point dismantling of Utah, a game that was never close after the first quarter. Read More »
As much as we want to give credit to Kobe Bryant for icing the Lakers win in Brooklyn last night, L.A. should throw the Nets a bone. Brooklyn did everything they could outside of express mailing the W to Hollywood. Down the stretch, the Nets endured a couple of bad shots from Brook Lopez – one was an ugly airball – on poorly executed plays. Then, Gerald Wallace threw away an inbounds pass. Read More »
Somewhere along the way, Jason Terry became more reliable than a Chinese fortune cookie. Maybe it was the first time he guaranteed a title with a tattoo. Or maybe it was during the ’11 Finals when he predicted LeBron couldn’t hold him down all series, and then went out and lit up the King. Or maybe it was this summer when we all saw him repeat the tattoo prediction again, and miraculously didn’t think it was all that crazy. Terry isn’t the guy you want to see on the other end of the Blackjack table right now. Read More »
The Suns had a grand plan all this time, the team said, and this season’s offseason moves were the culmination of deals they were eyeing since 2010. The Arizona Republic offered an interesting look inside the mind of Lon Babby‘s goal for the team, which — it doesn’t seem this long ago — was in three of six Western Conference Finals (last in just 2010).
